SOOO if it will ever cool down in Georgia and we actually get to experience FALL… life would be perfect right now for all of you basic b*tches pulling out your booties and flannels. It’s still 80 degrees in ATL people, but I’m right there with all of you! Fall, sweet fall. My first true love and all time favorite season. I LOVED YOU FIRST.
Growing up in north Georgia, we always had the coolest weather and BEST leaf change. I had to deal with traffic in my home town when all the “leaf lookers” came in! Now I understand from living in the city for so long and can emotionally accept that I’m now a leaf looker and I’M PROUD. I love going to visit with my boyfriend and friends!
Here are a few of my favorite spots for dates, friend outings or weekend getaways with whoever you want to spend time with for fall!
First, find a boyfriend, girlfriend or some friends, then grab a PSL from Starbucks, put on a great Spotify playlist and GO.
Here’s a fun day for fall that’s a close”ish” spot for a pumpkin patch in ATL…. Berry Patch Farms located in Woodstock, GA–there’s a ton of parking and it’s a cute little place no too far the city. You have to walk or take a hay ride to the pumpkin patch that’s in a separate field from the little “town” they have set up with snacks and drinks.
If you’re already making the trek to Woodstock and are really feeling fall, and you love wine and fireplaces, then make a pit stop over to Cartecay Vineyards in Ellijay, GA.
Very quaint spot with a large outdoor space in front of this gorgeous fireplace. They have cute wine glasses with this fireplace on it for purchase, are dog friendly and have live music. Definitely a must!
Next stop! Mercier Orchards in Blue Ridge, Georgia. Parking is chaos because it’s literally off the side of the road, but it’s worth it. You 100% have to eat the apple cider doughnuts along with some apple cider. Trust me, you will thank me later. You can do the hay ride situation or walk through the fields to see the apples!
I mean look at how much fun we’re having–go pick em’!
Another great pumpkin patch that would call for maybe a weekend or long day trip is at Burt’s Pumpkin Patch in Dawsonville, Georgia. This place is a little up there–but it’s a well-known and fun time. There are kids so BEWARE. They have awesome picturesque moments, a ton of pumpkins and great apple cider. Best photos of the day BELOW!
If you make the trip up there for either the day or to spend a whole weekend in a cabin, you have to go see Amicalola State Park. Beautiful waterfalls, hiking trails, etc. Pack your walking shoes, those stairs are intense–all 600 and something of them!
If you’ve seen all of these basic b*tches wearing cute fall attire and feel left out, then make a trip to the North Georgia Outlets and hit up Chik-fil-A on your way home.
Hope ya’ll have a great fall 🙂
